Genesis looked encouraging on first inspection but sadly, a closer look proved me wrong.
I'm afraid ambitious sci fi, needs an equally ambitious budget. This film in short simply lacks the $$ to meet any possible potential it might have had. That said, the general idea behind this film has been done before and done much much better too. Blade Runner is the obvious point of comparison (granted they are not the same but the general concept is).
Acting wise Genesis does do a good job. There is some decent talent brought on board for this project such as John Hannah. Its a shame the rest of the film could not live up to expectations.
As it stand marginally watchable but by no means special. 5/10 from me.
